HELLO FORKERS!

Same story here - very wet - although didn't hear any thunder last night.  Today is a day for chores, and will spend tomorrow in the garden.  As others have said, can't be too downhearted as the soil needed a really good soak.  

Hope sun will be shining on the vicarage by this afternoon - and the place will look and smell  lovely and fresh for its VIP visitors.  Enjoy your train ride Panda

Bekkie - probably Joy Larkcom - has written lots of books on veg gardening.

Sitting here waiting for the thunderstorms

Good luck Woody - and remember to enjoy it.  And all the East Ruston visitors - have a fantastic day - wish I could join you

Clematis

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 10:11
The best clematis in my garden started as plugs - they seem to establish so much better than the bigger plants from a GC. So next year you should be pleased with them, and the following year you will hopefully be amazed

The larger ones might have flowers already, but they will have been hurried along in conditions which are nothing like your garden. Plugs get to grow into their surroundings.
